Training provides businesses the opportunity to strengthen their employees’ existing skills and learn new ones, helping to boost individual and organizational performance. Training allows employees to become more effective while also increasing job satisfaction and reducing employee turnover.
Effective employment law training is equally important to running a best-in-class business. It is also critical in today’s work and regulatory environment. The options for off-the-shelf “check the box” training are endless. However, those trainings lack customization and relevance to a company’s culture and existing policies and often fail to effectively communicate and resonate with employees anxious to complete the required module and move on.
Kathlyn has been training employees for more than fifteen years on all facets of employment law and regulatory compliance, as well as on diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI), with a focus on unconscious bias.
Kathlyn has trained human resources professionals, management, and employees in all sizes of businesses and across industries. Whether conducting an intensive course for a small group of HR professionals or designing and implementing company-wide training, Kathlyn distills difficult concepts into digestible and interesting sessions, calling upon her 15 years of experience defending businesses against claims of discrimination, harassment, retaliation and providing daily advice and counsel on employee relations matters.
